Many of us associate asylum seekers with war and conflict, but there are many other drivers. In the past decade we have witnessed an emerging trend of “climate refugees”. With increasingly extreme weather, coffee farmers are at higher risk of loss of plantations becoming uninhabitable and being forced to leave.
Coffee as one of the world’s most traded commodities, is also one of the factors contributing to climate change. The current style of intensive coffee farming has a negative impact on the environment, including deforestation which is a contributor to climate change.
Please support our work to fight injustice and drive change for a fair society!
We still welcome any companies/organizations who wish to join us in the No Coffee Challenge! Simply pick any three days to conduct the campaign in the month of December. Please contact Maggie at [email protected]
